High Academic Standards are important at CCS. We believe each student should be challenged. Challenged not just to know facts and information, but challenged to think at higher levels; challenged to learn how to apply principles taught in the classroom with "real life"; and challenged to see how the subject they are learning really is a part of God's creation around them.
The small class sizes at CCS enables teachers to teach on a more presonal level. As a result, each student is recognized as a unique child of God and is not allowed to "slip through the cracks." More than just teaching the student, each teacher builds life into each of their students. This caring relationship that is established builds a unique trust between the student and teacher which often times results in motivating the student to high academic success.
We seek to make the classroom applicable to life. This begins in kindergarten through "experienced based" learning and continues through each grade level with various field trips, outdoor labs, and differrent projects our students are involved in. Students are challenged to put their faith into action and are given many opportunities to live this out while serving our community.
